It helps if you can draw a little but if not there are books out there with designs you can copy such as this one Pinstripe Designs Then use tracing paper to transfer the design. Now for the toughest part, you'll need to practice a bit of brush control to make the turns, stops and starts of lines, thinning and palleting the paint to get the right consistancy, etc. It is a bit of a learning curve, but just like welding it takes practice. You say that you have the patience so you have an advantage already. There are many books on the subject, Amazon has a good selection. Pinstriping Books Scroll down for the 3 frequently bought together............they are very good. Just like welding, you can read about it all you want but until you actually strike an arc you'll never be a welder. Go for it, It's not a huge investment, Amazon even has the supplies Starter Kit Good Luck
